For this I used the same pattern with pleats, as my previous purple dress. It's the same dress but in different material and color. I topstiched the dress  by hand with cotton perle thread (I know that I'm extremely boring, but I really love topstiching and my mother used to have a shop with these notions).











I hope you like it!

So pretty!  What a great dress - and the embroidering is the perfect touch.  Nice job!

The top stitching makes it look like a totally different spork pattern! Cheesy

Can you also wear it without the shirt for yet another great look?

too cute with those shoes!

Thanks so much to ask. I didn't even know what a spork was before coming to this forum Smiley

And still didn't find the answer.


I really like the dress, it's simple and stylish Smiley Really like tbucket too !

 Grin All tbuckets and sporks aside, what pattern did you use for this dress? It's pretty, and looks so comfortable!

It's a pattern from a very old burda issue.

Just so you all know, unless something was edited yesterday, it automatically went back to "normal" Cheesy  If something is still wonky, just hit "report to moderator"!

All the dresses you post are so pretty! This one, with its unusual topstitching, really looks great. I can't imagine doing sewing that is so precise.

The way you style things to make a complete outfit is very cool.
